Dental anxiety levels vary greatly amongst our patients. Some suffer from simple embarrassment that often prevents them from seeing a dentist. This often happens as a result of bad experiences with past dentists. On the other end of the spectrum, some of our patients previously avoided the dentist for years. They’ll tell you it’s because of a deep-rooted fear of the dentist. However, these patients are now in our care, have overcome some of their concerns, and are being treated regularly by our dentists.

How Dental Anxiety Affects Your Overall Health
In the past several years, researchers have established a huge correlation between oral and overall health. These researchers are discovering over and over again that the mouth is a gateway into the body for nutrients, vitamins, and also, bacteria. These bacteria can be good or bad. Probiotics like yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, or kombucha are all examples of good bacteria which replenishes the body’s defenses. However, there are several bacteria that aren’t so good. Perhaps the most significant example is the bacteria that naturally develops in a person’s mouth. This bacteria, if left untouched, will build up, encourage plaque and tartar growth, and ultimately, will pollute a person’s cardiac, nervous, and immune systems.
When a person goes years without seeing a dentist, they often don’t realize the damage it’s doing. Fortunately, we can reverse much of this damage if you act soon. While effective brushing and flossing is important, it’s equally important to see your dentist regularly. Regular dental visits allow your dentist to look at your teeth and stop the onset of any more serious problems. In other words, when you don’t go to the dentist, you often miss out on the chance to avoid extensive treatments. As time goes on, the longer you avoid the dentist, the more money you’ll end up paying to fix problems, and the more your body will feel the impact of poor oral health.
